No A/C unless you pay an extra $10.00 for a small extension cord - strange but true - see photo's,the lead from the A/C is about 30cm short. # Very poor,dangerous and confusing entry/exit. # Could be too noisy for some people with a busy intersection out the front and the tram line. # Internet advertised online and on the...

Hello Dalekate777, Goodness gracious Dalekate777 you are ticked off aren't you? Sometimes when you feel that everyone you meet is against you it might be time to check your own attitude! After reading your numerous other posts about accommodations you've stayed in the spray I've copped is not out of character for you. I do understand that I'm supposed to... More

The complex is dated and basic. Very noisy due to tram work. Did not feel secure as the locks on the sliding glass doors seemed loose, No air con in my room. ( amazing in 2013 ) A no frills motel. Saying the above, the rate of only $89.00 was a good deal. Close to Southport shops and only a... More

Hello Steve N, Thank you for choosing to stay at my motel in Southport back in July 2013. Your review was helpful and appreciated. Disruption from the construction of the Light Rail three months back when you stayed was intensive and periodically night works caused us much headache. There are 5 LIGHT RAIL STATIONS well under construction here in Southport... More

Checked two rooms out here which were out the back and the top room especially was the most disgusting room I've ever seen and I've travelled a bit in Eastern Europe and most of Asia. The place should be reported to whoever monitors the standards of hotels/motels in Australia as its an international embarrassment and potential health hazard. Only good... More

Due to circumstances we took our chances and booked last minute at the Sundale. The room was very rundown, small and poorly maintained. It was a terrible room which looked nothing like the photos on the website. Various things, eg the flush mechanism on the toilet, the venetian blind and the kitchen light were either broken or not working reliably.... More

Thank you for reviewing The Sundale Motel and rating our Location, Sleep Quality and Cleanliness as acceptable. We do agree that finding a room on the Gold Coast at the last minute in peak Christmas School holiday times for a single night without a reservation can be exceptionally difficult. The Sundale Motel has a convenient 24 hour online booking service... More

Just stayed at the Sundale Motel. Has been freshly painted but not worth $150.00 a night at any time. It's advertised price at the entrance of $89.00 is a realistic figure. Our son stayed at the Vibe Hotel, 21st. floor for $160.00.In our room there was no A/C, no wardrobe, no bedhead, no box of tissues, poor quality towels, no... More
